Apple Muffin Recipe

October 2014 012

I’ve tried a new muffin recipe over the past several months from a dear lady at church who made these for us after Titus was born. I had a staple muffin recipe that I grew up making, but I think I’ve replaced it with this new one! The original recipe was for blueberry muffins, but I made them with apples twice and they are just as delicious with apples as they are with blueberries! Now on to the recipe…

Apple or Blueberry Muffins

1/2 c. water
1/2 c. oats
3/4 c. whole wheat flour
3/4 c. white flour
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. baking soda
1 1/4 t. baking powder
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg, slightly beaten
1/2 c. canola oil
1-2 apples, chopped or 1 c. blueberries (fresh or frozen)
(1 t. cinnamon if making apple muffins)
cinnamon sugar

1) Mix water and oats with a spoon.
2) Add remaining dry ingredients, mix to combine.
3) Add egg and oil, mix until just combined.
4) Add apples or blueberries.
5) Pour into muffin tin and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Bake at 425 degrees for 18 minutes.
Makes 1 dozen

Happy Birthday Samson!

Happy Birthday to my best friend, my dearly beloved husband and much loved father of our girls, Samson!

I am so glad God blessed our world with your life. Your love of the Lord and your desire to please Him spur me on to love our great God and Savior more deeply. I appreciate you taking the time to wash me with the water of the Word each day. Watching you play with our girls gives me more pleasure than you know! They love their “daddy time”! Thank you for providing for your family so well- you work so hard. I am honored to be your wife!

~I love you~

Poor little rabbit- what happened to your ears?!

Fiona was keeping her eyes on the cake 🙂

The birthday cheesecake!

The cheesecake was delicious (if I may say so myself!)! I used this recipe from All Recipes.com… you should try it sometime!

Garlic Red Potatoes Recipe

The other day I was looking for a new way to make red potatoes. I came across this recipe from All Recipes.com. They turned out very delicious! The only suggestion I would have is that I had to bake mine for longer than the recipe called for, but that may have been due to the fact that I had an extra pound of potatoes baking in my dish. I plan to make them again sometime soon!
